And just like that, it comes unexpectedly.
Stretch. Yawn. Open. Wide-eyed.
Out of the ashes of our old self, the new us blooms.
Out of the ashes of our old words, a new story blooms.
It’s strange now.
This new world? This new sky? This new life? This new story?
It’s all so rushing, so flashing, so exciting. Up and away! We’re off.
Zoom. Splash. Tan-tan!
Turn. Flip. Somersault.
Exciting. Scary. Unexpected. New. So new.
It’s so much to take in, so much to rejoice, so much to celebrate.
The moving, the growing, the changing, the opening, the transforming, the re-visioning…
But even though we have come so far, we are still not there yet.
We’ve finally bloomed, yes, but the flower we now see before us is not our life’s dream realized, as we had once thought. No, the flower is only the promise of our life’s dream realized.
In nature, a flower tells us that if we are patient, and if we continue to take care and watch over it during the summer, it will almost certainly turn into a fruit in the fall.
The same law applies to your life’s journey:
Your life’s dream is now a flower.
But what does that mean?
It means you are on the right track.
It means that your story is now closer to its end than it is near its beginning.
It means that all the hard work you did internally, during the winter of your life, is now starting to show externally.
Your healing is “showing.”
It means that all the hard work you did on your story, during the winter time of the writing process, is starting to show, too.
Your talent is “showing.”
So, today, as you finally bloom, I want you to smile with me as you recognize what this now signifies for the both of us:
Our dreams are now almost certainly guaranteed, and our story is now almost certainly on its way to full completion.
